Cornus

Cornus

Ideal for showing off for the winter months and guaranteed to raise a smile on a sunny wintery day, when the stems positively shine with exuberance.

Cornus sanguinea ‘Midwinter Fire’

Grown for the brilliant, flame-coloured stems which are most apparent in the winter. It is a spreading form producing insignificant white flowers in summer and bearing oval green leaves which turn orange-yellow in autumn.

Beautiful when inter-planted with red or black stemmed dogwood for a striking effect.

Moist but well-drained soil and full sun/partial shade.

Cornus alba ‘Sibirica

A medium-sized shrub grown primarily for its winter stem colour which is a beautiful, bright, crimson red shade.

The brilliant red stems will look best if cut to the ground each year in March as it is the new growth which shows the colour.

If unpruned can be grown as a small to medium shrub with mid green leaves and white flowers in the spring and summer and bluish berries in the autumn.

Moist but well-drained soil and full sun/partial shade.
